Lookin' Thru Bifocals: Don Locke
As I scratch this, it is the day after President Trump is found not guilty of impeachment.
From the very beginning of the impeachment process it was said of the “Trump haters”; their bringing of impeachment charges was a big gamble on their part. Turns out it was.
In the New King James Bible, it says in Proverbs 16:33, “The lot is cast into the lap. But its every decision is from the Lord.”
In the everyday language of the Living Bible, it simply says in Proverbs 16:33, “we toss the coin, but it is the Lord who controls the decision.”
I firmly believe that God did not want President Trump thrown out of office. As one of the old professors at Western Kentucky University used to say, “End with that.”
Another encouragement to come out of all this is the fact that our U.S. Comstitution still works. “Sail on o ship of State. Sail on o Union strong and great.”
Winston Churchill was fond of saying: “Democracy may not be the best form of government, but I have yet to find one better.”
If I understood it, somewhere in one of the charges brought against President Trump was: He did favors for a foreign government in order to curry favors for himself and the U.S.
Well heck! People need to read history.
Before the U.S. entered World War-Two, England was up against-it fighting the Germans alone and about to lose.
Our law said that we (U.S.) could not sell war materials to a foreign country.
The way around this in order for us to help England; President Franklin Roosevelt (D) instigated the Lend-Lease Plan, whereby the U.S. furnished guns and tanks; ships and planes to England at no cost.
Later when the U.S. themselves went to war against Germany, England allowed America to set up our base of war operation on English soil; part of our recompense for Roosevelt’s Lend-Lease Plan, Quid-Pro-Quo: “We scratched your back, now thank you for scratching ours.”
That’s the world politics of give and take.
Remember, always drink up-stream of the herd.
